Ok, the dates on these articles *seem* incorrect. But recently four PLU students were beat horribly by party crashers and last week twice students were victims of armed robbery. Of course, the joke's on the criminals. These kids don't have any money. The school's got all the money.
In all seriousness, I'm kinda pissed. I walked around that campus in late March and I let Rachel just walk near me, not even necessarily always holding my hand. I thought that place was safe.
Ten years ago I would walk around at night all the time. I didn't the neighborhoods were great, but I never felt unsafe.
